  2. The point I was making - badly it seems, was that there appear to be an unusual number of serious crimes at the moment. There are others than the ones I originally listed. Added to that we have the recent spate of burglaries. I wasn't saying these crimes could have been prevented by the police, neither was I knocking their efforts in the burglaries. Burglaries are notoriously difficult to stop due to the opportunistic nature and quick entry / exit, often in and out within seconds or a minute or so at the most and off back into the bushes. It was more a comment on the times I suppose, rising crime and rising seriousness of crime. Whilst supporting a friend in court I heard the judge state (on another case) that Facebook was the cause of many of the hearings. Maybe we should ban Facebook, alcohol and people from the UK and the IOM would once again be crime free!

    Local News

    Just checked a local radio website local news section. Kidnap case, attempted murder case, stabbing case and a dead teenager found on local shores WTF is going on. Fortunately these things don't happen very often and the top copper is more concerned about alcohol licensing. Did they catch the thieves yet??

    They seem pricey - £140 for the oak! Ash is better anyway. Try ringing a few tree surgery people, they usually have stuff that's been seasoned and will deliver more for cheaper than the cash windfall people's prices. Or get yourself a chainsaw, safety gear and a good splitting axe and start your own log pile.
  6. Perhaps a TT museum could be merged with the House of Mannanin, went there recently and it was seriously dated and not really a very good expereince. They have the space for a great TT display and if this was coupled with some advanced multimedia it would make a great attraction, and no need to spend millions on a new build. Can't really see a World Series working. Insurances, loss of uniqeness and lack of teams and riders as others have said all seem to be valid reasons as to why it could not work. Much better to improve what we have and then look at somehow subsidising travel costs to the island the rest of the year and develop other attractions / festivals such as Mannifest. A bigger music festival would bring in more visitors than TT and would not have the associated costs of multiple deaths and accidents on the road. Keep to the TT and improve it, and develop and encourage other local tourist attractions. Red Bull sponsorship of the TT would be fantastic.

  8. Wing mirrors? But this is a 1961 car so maybe not.
  9. Do you know where (and why) the best place to 'buy' BitCoin is?
  10. Using your regular pc? Waste of time. You could turn a profit if you've got access to a network of well specced pc's, but anyone making cash off this thing is using dedicated miners. Even then, the criminals are pushing the difficulty up so even that's hard. Unless you want to invest some money, time and effort, or break the law, I'd avoid mining for profit. Would this be any good Slim? http://www.butterflylabs.com/landing/slanding.php Think they used to offer dedicated home use boxes too?
  11. If you have a mobile phone or are thinking of buying one for your 10 year old this Christmas you may like to take a look at the following link: http://rt.com/shows/the-truthseeker/manifacturers-cell-phone-warning-447/ Cue Chinahand and the rest to tell you it's all bollocks...
  12. Go to the Head Office in Slough and find that twat Barry Scott's car, then spray the fucker all over with Cillit Bang, and spray his car too.
  13. We already have an Act of Tynwald banning GMO's on the Isle of Man http://www.legislation.gov.im/cms/images/phocadownload/Acts_of_Tynwald/Primary_2001/Genetically%20Modified%20Organisms%20Act%202001.pdf I think this was down to Phil Gawne. Some of the farmers are pro GMO of course due to lobbying, and brainwashing at collges but we can hopefully keep it out over here. This is an interesting watch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N6_DbVdVo-k Would be great if there were more incentives for farmers to go organic, higher taxes on pesticides and herbicides would be a start and cash grants to go arganic instead would help. Seeme strange to spray poison on your food after all!
  14. What would the cost have been to lay an extra cable - or two - with all the related infrasatructure, and could one have been laid to Scotland or Ireland?
